Networking

Secure and control the traffic to your applications with your own private network, traffic filtering, and load balancing.

Manage DNS for Droplets, DigitalOcean Load Balancers, and non-DigitalOcean resources all in the same place.
DigitalOcean Floating IPs are publicly-accessible static IP address that you can assign to Droplets and instantly remap to other Droplets in the same datacenter.
Load balancers distribute traffic across pools of Droplets for high availability setups.
Restrict traffic with network-based, stateful firewalls for Droplets.
IPv6 is intended to replace IPv4 and provide a larger address space, increased security, and other benefits. DigitalOcean currently only supports IPv6 for Droplets. You can enable IPv6 on a Droplet to gain access to its 16 configurable IPv6 addresses.
Use private networking to transfer data between Droplets without using the public internet and secure connections between Droplets and DigitalOcean Load Balancers in your account.
